Hackers will not launch Sony staff’ private information in the event that they object
This is an odd twist to the Sony Footage hack: the attackers have gotten courteous… comparatively talking, in fact. The Guardians of Peace are threatening to launch but extra of the studio’s knowledge as a “Christmas present,” however they’re additionally providing to withhold private info if staff ask to maintain it out of the general public eye. It isn’t clear what prompted the sudden concern for privateness, though it might come from a realization that the leaks are hurting strange staff, not simply actors and executives. It is a half-hearted gesture — actual privateness would not contain leaks within the first place, in any case — nevertheless it means that the hacking group will not simply dump every thing it has. Not that Sony will take a lot consolation on this, thoughts you. The Guardians declare that the longer term knowledge launch will probably be “extra fascinating,” which is not any imply feat when earlier posts have included film scripts and superstar conversations.
